I'm proudest when I fix a tough bug. Writing code is largely a matter of imagination and syntax, but bug hunting is serious analytical work. I get a rush everytime I nab a really nasty one. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm the one that wrote the buggy code, which I suppose qualifies as stupid!

Lately I've been thinking about another kind of Stupid Emotional Programmer Attachment - the attachment to a favorite language. As the freak that wrote a Perl SDK for Quake 3, I know all about choosing the wrong tool for the job. I've been reading about 3d game programming again and I just can't stop thinking about doing it with Perl. That's just plain dumb. First, Perl performance simply not up to the task. And more importantly, I can learn a lot more from the tons of high quality C/C++ 3d game code if I'm working in the same environment instead of hacking around in an backwater. Smarten up, me!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
